The VP1 gene of foot-and-mouth disease virus (serotype C1) has been cloned in Escherichia coli Clts cells, under the control of the bacteriophage lambda p L promoter. The expressed VP1 protein was complete and non-fused, and its molecular weight was indistinguishable from that of the VP1 obtained from virions. Cells harbouring the recombinant vectors(More)
The aim of this paper was to present the main results obtained in Cuba on the effects of feeding tropical trees and shrubs on rumen methanogenesis in animals fed with low quality fibrous diets. More than 20 tree and shrub foliages were screened for phytochemicals and analyzed for chemical constituents. From these samples, seven promising plants (Samanea(More)
In an outbreak of epidemic neuropathy (EN) in Cuba (1992-1993), most patients were improved by vitamin therapy. In subjects with residual symptoms, alternative treatments including homeopathy were suggested to ameliorate optic and peripheral signs of the disease. An open clinical pilot trial was conducted on 31 patients with long standing symptoms of optic(More)
General conditions for continuous expression of heterologous genes fromP L promoter in two fermenters connected in series have been established. The induction time of the bacterial cells is calculated as a function of the retention time in the inducing reactor. Using this model, it is possible to adapt fermentation parameters to the particular behaviour of(More)
